The Chinese company Vivo announced the expansion of the support program for its flagship smartphones. We are talking about powerful devices of the X-Series family, which will debut this year.
Vivo intends to distribute Android operating system and security updates within three years of the launch of the new X-Series smartphones. This policy will affect devices released after July 2021.
